crash environment so you really get to see the whole picture which you never get to see in the lab. so it gives us an opportunity to have a whole new data set to use for seats and interiors. >> so what would you change now? >> well, it's difficult to say what you would change. like there's nothing -- they're doing a pretty good job right now. it validated what the current safety regulations and measures are doing. so without making a big drastic change, oh, this is a problem. in other words, it gives you information that says, okay, we can do this, we can use the forces we measured at the floor to see how better seats and interiors could be designed. >> for example, at the start of the show today. we had a row of seats become unbolted from an airplane in flight. >> right. >> might you be strengthening those on other flights coming up? >> it's probably more of a maintenance issue. the strength is usually good. it's making sure everything's put in properly but it will help you understand the limits of survivability. >> well, it's a fascinating experience. most crashes are in fact surv e
